Someone would need to test the relay and the circuits it controls.
The horn pad grounds the relay to make the horn blow.

Further down you will see a diagram of the bumper removal.

remove the two bolts under the hatch, the four plugs along the bottom edge, and the plate light. Don't forget the red circle clip or bolt on the diagram. Then you just pull it off.

SOURCE: i depress my horn on my 2008 yaris and it stays on

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to help...

What you probably have is a bad "spiral cable", or better known as the "clockspring". This is a cable that winds and unwinds as the steering wheel is turned. This cable allows power to be transmitted to the air bag, to deploy it, in the event of a collision. Since the horn button is in front of the air-bag, the circuit that allows the horn to activate is also part of this cable device.

We would suggest having it properly checked by a professional who is very familiar with this device, and, if it is found to be bad, replaced. Non-professional diagnosis and poking about with the spiral cable could lead to an air bag that will not deploy.

Thanks for using FixYa for assistance today.

Toyota Yaris auto stall after prolonged idle period - throttle body cleaned / air mass meter replaced / no codes. Any clues


When idling for long periods of time the spark plugs can get fouled, Soon as you step on the gas the engine will usually spit and sputter then go or just stall. Avoid prolonged idling, if you must do it periodically give it some gas (pump the pedal a few times) to clear the plugs and keep them from fouling.

I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and the horn goes off by itself. Once while the engine was off for 30 seconds then today while driving for 10 mins. Intermittent beeping and the Jeep has no alarm.


You'll have to pull steering wheel to check but there's a contact ring under the wheel that has a pin that rides on it to activate horn. If pin bends breaks or dis-lodges you get "horn effects"

Intermittent Starting Problem


You have to determine if the problem is loss of fuel press or a los of ignition spark when the no start occurs, I suspect the fuel pump.

Horn died


It is either the rotating contact under the steering wheel that connects the horn button to the horn relay, or the horn relay and or the horn itself.
